One of the DA definitions of mature content is as follows:
· Ideologically Sensitive: If your work may be construed as offensive toward a person or a group of people due to a religious, political, social, or other belief please utilize this tag. This does not mean you are permitted to submit hate propaganda or hate art, which strongly implies and encourages violent acts against any of the above individuals or groups.
I challenge you to make a piece of art that wouldn’t be offensive towards any person or group of people! It just can’t be done. I’m guarantee that whatever it is, it surely will offend someone somewhere. I do understand that this rule is to weed out hate, racism and so on, but it is shame that it can be used to take down anything one does not like.
“That’s not even real art!”
What is art? It must be one of the most difficult questions out there. Art is purely subjective matter. What is art to someone is pornography to other … or waste of words, paint, space, bandwith, time, etc. Someone stating that bare ass on photo isn’t “real art” doesn’t understand that someone else doesn’t see his/her My Little Pony fanfiction art either. Both of those are still seen side by side among most popular list. Which means that both works of art are enjoyed by large amount of people. “Live and let live”. If something isn’t to your liking, skip it. Let it be and don’t go trolling artist’s page about his/her works not being “real art”. If you are deeply offended by thumbnails or works you don’t like, artist community is clearly a wrong place for you. Everything is art or nothing is art!
When someone narrow minded stumbles in community to material he/she does not approve, they quite often cry out for removing the work. Their taste in art must be absolute and all should value works in same way. Censorship is one thing that really rubs me the wrong way. Adult person within legal age should be able to experience pretty much anything that isn’t harmful to others. We can't make the rules by factor of most sensitive. In that way everything will be banned and nothing will be done.
Summa summarum: Please try to be understanding towards all forms of art. Tolerate existence of works that aren’t your thing and don’t force your personal taste to others … aka … don’t be a dick!
